“Smooth is being re-defined. Sam Fazio handles the classics with gentle, respectful care. There’s a purity in his voice that puts a wonderful, new spin on songs that you love. “
Dean Richards, Entertainment Reporter/Critic

"A singer with a clean, warm voice and attractive delivery, Sam Fazio is not your usual jazz singer, as he blends the type of voice that would sound good on Broadway with an overt Sinatra influence in what is a winning combination."
Brad Walseth, www.jazzchicago.net
